An italian car that essentially weighs less than a lotus, has more power, a six speed auto box (sluch boxes cost more than manual trannys), which starts at 45k and therefore costs a fair bit less than an elise as well (sure they were 42k starting in 2006, but not 2011)... Something, or a few things are going to have to give. The speculated 250hp+ and only a sub 5 seconds 0-60 is pretty indicative that all isn't quite right. Maybe they have a knocked down version that starts the pricepoint...
I'm certainly not opposed to the car existing as described. More power to them (no pun intended), but i'll believe it when i see it. I'm going to guess 2700 lbs. Can't say i'm really all that exited about the looks either...
